All About Forensic Science [electronic resource]

Unlike what's seen on TV crime shows, forensic science often requires weeks or months to produce results, and-although it's far from boring-it rarely involves confronting a suspect. This program debunks pop-culture stereotypes and illuminates the real-world chemistry, biology, and physics of criminology. Exploring three main forensic science disciplines-field work, lab analysis, and medical examination-the program shows how crime scenes are defined and protected; how blood, DNA, fingerprints, cloth fibers, spent ammunition, and other forms of physical evidence are gathered and studied; and how autopsies, dentistry, toxicology, and psychology come into play.

Forensic Science in Action [electronic resource]: From Crime Scene to Courtroom

What happens when a deadly crime takes place and law enforcement puts all of its scientific resources into action? Can forensic science really solve a murder? This program follows scientists through a dramatized investigation, from the discovery of the crime scene through various stages of evidence analysis to the presentation of findings in court. Instead of Hollywood hype, viewers are given a realistic portrayal of the forensic science process, including field photography, evidence recording, victim identification, DNA profiling, fingerprint readings (complete with an explanation of print types and ridge analysis) and much more. Set in Australia.
